Rose - S1-E1

Deliberate mistake: The final Auton attack in this episode is supposed to take place in a busy London street, but it is a pedestrianised area, and several shots reveal this. For example, there are no road markings visible, no apparent distinction between pavement and road, and a bus stop appears to sit in the middle of the 'road'.

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: The top of the Tipton Hotel is animated. You can tell because in the opening of any episode showing the top of the hotel, there should be 3 visible peaks. You can see 2 peaks and if you look where the middle peak should be, you can see through the top of the hotel to the sky on the other side.
